Dee Snider has released the official music video for the song “American Made.” The track is taken from the Snider’s latest studio album, For The Love Of Metal, which was released on July 27 via Napalm Records.
Snider speaks about the meaning behind the song, “I was watching the Olympics and couldn’t help but notice that no matter how ‘at each other’s throats’ we all appear to be politically these days, amazingly we are all unified when it comes to our country against another. It made me realize that countries are like dysfunctional families: we may argue and fight amongst each other (You should have seen the extended Snider family Christmas this year. People literally almost came to blows. On Christmas!?), but should someone dare attack any one of us and the entire family will band together against the aggressor. This goes for all countries. This song is a song on unification – recognizing that there is a very important something we all share and should be proud of: where we are from.”
For The Love Of Metal was produced by Hatebreed vocalist Jamey Jasta and features contributions from Howard Jones (ex-Killswitch Engage), Mark Morton (Lamb Of God), Alissa White-Gluz (Arch Enemy), Joel Grind and Nick Bellmore (Toxic Holocaust) and Charlie Bellmore (Kingdom Of Sorrow).
